CFP: 200 Years of Sense & Sensibility ~ St. Andrews Conference

I am posting this on behalf of the conference organizer:  please email her directly if you have questions.

CALL FOR PAPERS:  200 YEARS OF SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
a Two Day Conference
SCHOOL OF ENGLISH, UNIVERSITY OF ST ANDREWS,
9–10 S
EPTEMBER 2011

Keynote speakers:

Kathryn Sutherland (St Anne’s College, Oxford) 

and

Paula Byrne (author of the new Harper Collins Jane Austen biography).

‘I am never too busy to think of S&S’, Jane Austen wrote to her sister, Cassandra in April 1811. The year saw the publication of her first novel and to mark the anniversary, we are hosting a conference that reflects upon two hundred years of readership and opens up new interpretations of the novel. We invite proposals for 20-minute papers and round table panels on any aspect of the novel.

Possible topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Social and historical context
  • Reception
  • Tradition of Sensibility/contemporary aesthetic theory
  • Literary influences
  • Sibling relationships
  • Feminist readings
  • Adaptations and appropriations
  • Re-writings and sequels
  • The novel’s place in the canon

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words to the conference organisers, Marina Cano López and Rose Pimentel, at 200sensibilities [at] gmail [dot] com

Please also email us with any questions at the above address. The deadline for proposals is 30 June 2011
